Democrats have continued to skirt around the rise in violent crime in American cities, which are being committed by groups claiming to be part of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The past three days have been filled with DNC speakers pointing fingers at President Trump for his coronavirus response, while ignoring the growing violence in Democrat-run cities.
Just one day before the event began, a man was nearly killed in Portland and not one speaker offered sympathy to him or victims like him in Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis or New York City.

Instead, lawmakers like Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D) have been accused of stoking unrest in a bid to hurt the president’s reelection campaign.
“I’m looking to the public, you know, this is as much about public outcry and organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure so that this GOP-led Senate and that these governors that continue to carry water for this administration…hold them accountable.”
When Democrats began calling to defund police, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said he was absolutely on board. However, his campaign has since distanced itself from that movement as multiple police unions have begun to endorse President Trump.
